Not Me! Thursday!!

It's a good thing it's NOT "Not Me! Monday" today. Or maybe this should be the "Thursday Edition" of "Not My Child Monday" instead.

Some things just can't wait until Monday.

Like today. My 4 year old son did NOT walk up to me, while I was in the middle of a deep conversation with a woman from another church, hold his hand up to me, interrupt me and say "Mommy! Look! A big booger!!" Um, Hi! That's NOT my son!!

Or this week. My two boys have NOT been having fights over imaginary things. Like cupcakes that don't really exist. At the dinner table during dinner. Leading to crying and screaming. "I have a cupcake!" "No, it's MY cupcake!" "No it's NOT! It's MY cupcake!" Or imaginary musical instruments that they like to play when our IPOD is playing. "You can't play [air] guitar! You play the [imaginary] drums! It's my turn to play [air] guitar!" Um, what?!
Or over who gets to sing a louder rendition of "Real Gone" at the dinner table. "That's MY song!" "No it's not, it's MY song!" This is NOT life at MY house!

The boys have also NOT been obsessed with chasing monsters and fighting bad guys all day long. It is pretty funny to see a 2 year old, with a binky in his mouth who just woke up from a nap, explaining in detailed lisps how he had a dream and "chased the bad guys and fought them with his sword and went yah, yah, yah!!! and now they are all gone."

I also do NOT have a 4 year old son, who commented after seeing a large woman walk by our car today, say loudly "Mommy, why are her arms so big?" and my response was NOT "Well, honey, maybe she ate too many donuts." And I am NOT laughing so hard right now while I am recalling that incident that I am crying!!

I also did NOT most likely break a crown in my mouth this week, while sneaking left-over jaw breakers from our not-so-fun gingerbread house making night. Have YOU ever tried to make a gingerbread house with a 2 & 4 year old? I hope YOU had fun. Oh, and I really think "jaw breakers" should be renamed "crown breakers."

Other than those events which may or may NOT have happened, I have enjoyed decorating our house for Christmas this week, snuggling with Jaden every morning in bed when he runs in at 4am, loving the cooler weather and getting in the Christmas spirit!!


  1. I don't know how I got here, but I'm glad I came. Laughing out loud about the bugar story. I have 3 boys & so appreciate this post!

  2. FUNNNNNY!!! Life with boys is SO different than life with girls :D But we do have our fair share of boogers and embarrassing moments (and bickering and imaginary instruments). :D

  3. You are a BRAVE woman attempting to make gingerbread houses with a 2 & 4 year old! I thought about it BRIEFLY then dismissed the idea as my almost 2 and almost 4 year olds and I have enough "fun" baking cookies together. :)

  4. You are sooooo funny, Jaimie! Ahhh, it's like I get to be a "fly on the wall" of your life reading your blog posts. Memories, huh? Rachel said at Target the other day, "Mom, that guy just came in front of us and didn't say excuse me?". She said it pretty loud and I was so I love how you write!!!
